600 posts!

I love taking photos of my new home and I can't believe I've shared 600 of them with you already! Of course, that's only a pittance of the amount of photos I have on my hard drive :)

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy sharing them.

friendly ducklings

Since these little ones live on a pond next to a primary school, I thought they'd be afraid of people with so many kids around. But, nope, they weren't afraid at all as Hubby dropped bread pieces between his boots and they scurried in to eat.

Christmas came early for me

I am so excited because I got a new camera for Christmas! Ok, it's not quite Christmas, yet. And, the camera is second hand, which I don't mind at all. But it was a very good deal and it might inspire me to use settings besides 'auto' :)  It's a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS.

Hubby was keen to check out the zoom, so he took these two shots while standing at the same spot. I think it will do quite nicely! 

But, in checking the manual and settings--and there are a LOT of them!--I might just be in over my head by changing from my point and shoot to this DSLR. But, if all else fails, I can still use the 'auto' setting!

These tiny creatures found at low time always intrigue me. The larger groups are only about an inch across.

patient gulls



As Hubby and I were watching the waves, this kingfisher flew in and had a look around.
